Despite The Crew Motorstorm getting formally revealed weeks ago with an expected 2023 release, Ubisoft’s Ivory Tower team continues to keep the pedal firmly held to the metal with consistent support for The Crew 2 throughout the rest of the year. The Crew 2 has now entered Season 8 with the release of Episode 1: USST Cities.
The Crew 2 – Season 8 Episode 1 release brings more content
The highlights for Episode 1 of Season 8 for The Crew 2 include new touring cars, 16 new touring car events, new vanity items, and a new Motorpass.
The US Speed Tour, which was first introduced back in Season 3, has players shifting into high gear and letting the RPMs roar as they belt through the country’s largest cities at top speed. Competitors should prepare to gauge their speed and mind their cornering skills as they meander through “twisty urban tracks” and make up for lost time by taking advantage of straighter sections. The team has also outfitted each event race this season with an Endurance Race that will “test your fortitude as you conquer these long trials.”
Some of the new vehicles available to move up the ranks with are the 2020 Saleen S1 GT4, 2020 KTM X-Bow GT2, and 2008 Spyker C8 LaViolette GT2-R. They’re joined by some returning favorites, such as the Bentley Mulliner Bacalar, Jaguar F-Type SVR Coupe Pro Edition, Jaguar E-Type Series 1 Convertible and the KTM 450 EXC Nighthawk Edition motorbike. There are more cars to unlock as you move your way up the latest Motorpass.
For the real speed freaks, you can enjoy the Motorflix Arena which is located on Lake Michigan; it functions as a new playground.
